Wholesome: Organic Coconut Palm Sugar, 16 oz
Organic Coconut Palm Sugar (also known as Organic Coconut Sugar) is a rich, unrefined brown sugar with a deep caramel flavor.
It is produced by tapping the sweet nectar from the tropical coconut palm tree flower and drying the nutrient rich juice in a large open kettle drum. The juice condenses into a delicious, handmade whole brown sugar that adds warm color and a depth of flavor to baking.
No chemicals, bone char, or animal by-products are used to make or de-colorize this sugar making it ideal for vegans. It is delightful in brownies, cookies and cakes and also makes a perfect topping for oatmeal. Also it’s commonly used to sweeten Asian dishes, sauces and beverages.
Their Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is hand made by small farmer cooperatives on the island of Java in Indonesia. Cooperative farmers climb high into the Coconut Palm trees to tap the coconut tree flower for its sweet nectar, similar to tapping a maple tree for syrup.
Organic Coconut Palm Sugar’s Sustainability Story: Wholesome is committed to sustainable organic agriculture. The coconut palm tree has been harvested for over 4,000 years. Unlike the production of palm oil (made from the Elaeis guineensis) which has received a negative image for causing damage to the natural environment through deforestation and habitat loss for endangered species, Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is produced on small, sustainable, cooperative owned farms.
Farmers harvest all year round and use every part of the coconut palm tree including the coconut fruit for meat and water as well as the fibrous husk of the coconut for twine or weaving material. Coconut Palm Trees (Cocos nucifera) are tapped for 25-40 years and use less water than most other crops. Since the tree produces for so long they are not cut down after each harvest.
